Death of Richard Breen: The death occurred on Friday, September 16th at South Tipperary General Hospital, Clonmel, of Richard Breen, Ballyknock, Cashel. Richie, as he was affectionately known was son of the late Dick and Mary Breen (nee Higgins) and had reached his 70th birthday last May. His mother, who hailed from Cooleagh, Ballinure, was very supportive of her own mother and siblings with the result that Richie also helped in his maternal homestead and attended the local national school in Ballinure, before transferring to the Vocational School in Cashel. He was a gifted carpenter, having learned the trade from his uncle Mick Higgins in Cooleagh, who had a contract with Tipperary County Council in repairing old houses. The two of them cycled in all kinds of weather doing this work in surrounding areas, until Richie got a motor car. Later, he worked in Ballysheehan Stud Farm, where he gave many years of faithful service to the Myerscough family, who valued his expertise and dedication. He was also a good mechanic and for a hobby he loved to restore vintage tractors. He loved music and dancing and enjoyed playing the accordion. Possessed of pleasant, courteous and unassuming disposition, Richie was one of nature’s gentlemen. Family was very important to him and he was a good neighbour and a sincere friend to many. When ill health set in about three years ago, he bore his terminal illness with Christian fortitude and patience and was greatly supported by his sister Noelette and family. His remains were removed on Monday September 18th from Devitts Funeral Parlour, Cashel to the Church of Our Lady of Fatima, Dualla and after Requiem Mass celebrated by Fr. Christy O’Dwyer, Dean of Cashel, and assisted by Fr. Joe Egan P.P., Fr. James Ryan, Cashel and Fr. Tomas Egan (retired), interment took place in the adjoining cemetery, where his mother Mary was laid to rest in 1990. His father who died in 1966 and little brother Thomas aged eleven months are both interred in Killballyherberry Cemetery. He is survived by his sister Noelette O’Shea, nephew Diarmuid and niece Pamela, brother in law, Joe O’Shea, cousins, relatives and friends to whom sincere sympathy is extended. Peace to his soul.
